Press release date: May 1, 2014

CEO and Founder of SolidCAM, Dr. Emil Somekh, paid a special visit to Brazilian racing Stock Car manufacturer JL Racing. The visit, organized by SolidCAM's distributor in Brazil, IST Sistemas, was aimed at strengthening the partnership between the companies. Since SolidCAM's installation in JL Racing by IST Sistemas in November 2013, shorter cycle times by 50% were achieved in the manufacturing of JL Racing metal parts.

JL Racing was founded in Brazil in 1990, and its initial involvement in motor sport was the production of racing karts, where it won major championships five years in a row. Since then, it has expanded its portfolio and in the year 2000 began manufacturing parts for racing Stock Cars, developing new tubular chassis for several categories of Stock Car and expanding its engine maintenance operations. In 2004 its prototype endurance vehicle, JL-P1 was in pole position on its debut run in the famous sports car endurance race - Mil Milhas Brasil.

Gustavo Lehto Gomes, Engineering Coordinator of JL Racing Products explains how the company started with SolidCAM software: "Last year, we developed a new sleeve component. Initially, it seemed that for us to deliver the part in time, we would need to outsource its manufacturing, which would result in a cost increase. Before making a decision, we consulted with IST Sistemas. Its engineers explained the advantages and benefits of SolidCAM and how its revolutionary iMachining technology could save 70% in CNC machining time and more, and give dramatically extended tool life. We tested the software and were impressed with the results – we were able to reduce the manufacturing time by approximately 50%, and still keep the quality we wanted. SolidCAM iMachining made it possible for us to finalize the project on time without having to outsource it.”

A key ingredient of SolidCAM's strategy is its commitment to its Gold certified seamless integration in SolidWorks. IST Sistemas is a distributor of SolidWorks in Brazil, and supplied the SolidWorks CAD system in use for design at JL Racing. "SolidCAM is seamlessly integrated in SolidWorks, enabling full associativity between the CAD developed projects and the machining itself. For JL Racing this integration makes it possible for the company to execute rapid design and manufacturing developments, a common feature in motor sport." explains Dr. Emil Somekh.

"SolidCAM provides all the benefits manufacturing businesses need to improve and achieve the competitive edge they need for success. SolidCAM + SolidWorks is the complete integrated CAD/CAM solution and, with its amazing iMachining, can reduce machining time by 70% and more" said Alvaro Marzola, Director of IST Sistemas.
